World No. 8 Yon Lam withdraws from US Open due to left foot virus infection Press conference wearing slippers

Jon Lam (Spain), ranked 8th in the men’s golf world rankings, will not be able to participate in the US Open, a major tournament, due to a foot injury.

At a pre-US Open press conference held in Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA on the 12th, Rahm announced that he was unable to participate in the tournament due to a viral infection in his left foot.

Ram appeared at the press conference that day wearing slippers and said, “I’m worried about my left foot injury.” But a few hours later, he gave up competing altogether.

Rahm is the 2021 US Open winner. He then won the Masters in 2023 and rose to number one in the world.

Ram, who won the PGA Tour, moved to LIV Golf this year and has yet to experience a win since then.

He has been struggling with a foot injury recently. Rahm, who withdrew from last week’s Liv Golf Houston tournament due to a foot virus infection, did not improve his condition thereafter. In the end, he also had to skip the US Open, the third major tournament of the season.

“I don’t know why, but the area between his left little toe and the toe next to it got infected,” Lam explained. “It’s getting better little by little, but it still hurts.” Meanwhile, due to Rahm’s withdrawal, Jackson Thurber (USA), a standby player, received the right to participate in his place. This is Server’s first US Open appearance. 토토사이트

Choi Eun-woo, who won the competition for the second time in a row

Choi Eun-woo overcame the intense tension at the Korea Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour Nexen-St. Nine Masters and won the championship for the second year in a row.

Choi Eun-woo reduced one stroke with two birdies and a bogey in the third round on the last day of the competition held at Gaya Country Club Shineo-Nakdong Course (par 72) in Gimhae-si, Gyeongsangnam-do on the 21st, and reached the top with a total of 8 under par 208 strokes. The winning prize is 162 million won.

Jeong Yun-ji, who competed fiercely with Choi Eun-woo in the champion group, was tied for second place (7 under par, 209 strokes), one stroke behind Lee Dong-eun.

Yunji Jeong took second place for two consecutive weeks, including last week’s Mediheal and Hankook Ilbo Championships.

Jeong Yun-ji’s tee shot did not reach the green, and Choi Eun-woo’s tee shot with a 6-iron fell 2.2 meters next to the hole.

After Jeong Yun-ji’s par putt missed the hole, Choi Eun-woo made a birdie putt and immediately took the lead by one stroke.

Choi Eun-woo’s second shot at the 18th hole (par 4) was caught on the edge of the green, but he finished with 2 putts to confirm his victory.

Eunwoo Choi was lucky to save par on the 16th hole (par 5) before the 17th hole.

The second shot from the fairway flew into the woods on the left, but the ball hit the gallery and entered the playing area.

Choi Eun-woo hit par with his third shot on the green, setting the stage for victory.

Choi Eun-woo, who showed an unwavering performance by taking the lead in the first and second rounds, said, “I had a difficult game in the wind and rain yesterday, so I felt at ease today.” He added, “It seems like my second win came early after winning my first win last year. “Winning is great, but I want to become a player who stays on the tour for a long time,” he said.

Lee Dong-eun, who tied for second place, performed well on the last day, reducing 4 strokes and posting the best performance among rookie players. 스포츠토토

Promise the highest courtesy and exercise patience Hanwha saves Ryu Hyun-jin’s pride

Ryu Hyun-jin smiles

“I couldn’t get a $10 million offer from MLB” Based on participation in posts from 12 years ago Hanwha continues to woo and deliver a contract at the end of January. Son Hyuk’s friendship also played a role.

The 2012 Professional Baseball All-Star Game was held at Daejeon Hanbat Baseball Stadium on July 21, 2012.Western team starting pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin of Hanwha is coming down the mound after allowing no runs in the bottom of the second inning.

The KBO League’s home team, the Hanwha Eagles, saved the pride of ‘Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin (36).

On the 22nd, Hanwha announced that it had signed an eight-year contract with Ryu Hyun-jin worth a total of 17 billion won.

The total amount of 17 billion won is the highest ever in Korean professional baseball, surpassing the previous record of 15.2 billion won for 4+2 years by Yang Eui-ji (Doosan Bears).

Ryu Hyun-jin, who faced the cold reality in MLB’s Stove League, is grateful for the hospitality of his home team.

Several clubs, including the San Diego Padres and Pittsburgh Pirates, were mentioned as destinations for Ryu Hyun-jin, who became a free agent (FA) in October of last year, but they were unable to reach an agreement.

If it had been a strategy to raise the price, there would have been no problem, but Ryu Hyun-jin said his pride was hurt by the poor evaluation of MLB clubs.

In particular, no team offered an annual average of $10 million, which was a psychological Maginot line.

An official on Ryu Hyun-jin’s side said, “This winter, we did not receive contract offers worth more than $10 million per year on average from major league clubs, and during this process, Ryu Hyun-jin considered returning to the KBO League.”

‘$10 million’ is also the minimum amount that Hanwha set when it posted Ryu Hyun-jin (private competitive bidding) in 2012.

At the time, Hanwha did not plan to allow the company to enter the U.S. unless there was a big league team offering more than $10 million.

However, MLB teams’ evaluation of Ryu Hyun-jin was beyond imagination.The Los Angeles Dodgers gave Hanwha 25,737,737 dollars and 33 cents, which ranks fourth in the major league posting system, and later signed a large six-year contract worth $36 million with Ryu Hyun-jin.

Twelve years have passed since then, and Ryu Hyun-jin may feel the passage of time.

It was impossible to avoid harsh evaluations from local American media.

Jim Bowden, a former MLB general manager, set Ryu Hyun-jin’s price at $8 million per year and advised, “Due to the risk of injury, we will have to accept a one-year contract.”

‘MLB Trade Rumors’, which specializes in transfer news, mentioned Ryu Hyun-jin’s strikeout rate (17.0%), number of innings (11 games, 52 innings), and average fastball speed (88.8 miles per hour) in the 2023 season, calling him a ‘5-inning pitcher’. “It seems difficult to receive more treatment,” he predicted. 토토사이트

Suspicion of failure to report or take action against sexual assault by coach at Nam Hyun-hee’s fencing academy

Jeon Cheong-jo, who said, “I plan to marry Nam Hyun-hee,” also seems to have been involved in running the academy.

Hyunhee Nam

Even though circumstances of sexual violence by a leader were revealed at an academy run by former national fencing team member Nam Hyun-hee, it was reported that it was not reported to the Sports Ethics Center or investigative agency in a timely manner.

According to reports from Yonhap News on the 26th, the police received a complaint from the victim in July, alleging that leader A, who worked at the Nam Hyunhee International Fencing Academy in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, had committed sexual violence, including sexual harassment, against two minor students for several months.

Person A

Is said to have made an extreme choice when allegations of sexual violence became public in the hospital in early July, a few days after the complaint was filed.

About three months later, on the 10th, a report with the same content was received by the Sports Ethics Center.

The center is conducting an investigation after receiving an additional report that Nam Hyun-hee, the head of a private academy, was aware of the problem but did not take sufficient action.

According to the center, it appears that Nam Hyun-hee did not report the sexual violence incident at the hospital to the relevant authorities in time.

According to Article 18-4 (2) of the National Sports Promotion Act,

coaches, athletes, and other ‘athlete management personnel’ specified by

Ordinance of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism must

immediately notify the Sports Ethics Center or an investigative agency if

they are aware of any suspected violations of human rights or corruption in the sports field.

According to the Ordinance of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and

Tourism, reporting obligations are imposed not only on leaders of sports

organizations under the Korea Sports Council but also on operators of private academies.

The center’s position is that it has not received any separate

communication about the issue of sexual violence from Nam Hyun-hee or the Fencing Academy.

Nam Hyun-hee

Was at the center of controversy when she revealed in a recent interview

with the monthly magazine Women’s Chosun that she was about to marry her ‘boyfriend‘ Jeon Cheong-jo.

Mr. Jeon

Who also participated in the interview, was introduced as a third-

generation chaebol, a horseback riding athlete who retired due to an injury, and a young businessman.

However, soon after the interview was made public, suspicions arose

against Mr. Jeon, including false gender, a criminal record for fraud, and

impersonation of a third-generation chaebol.

In fact, it was confirmed through a court ruling that Jeon, a ‘woman’ in the

past, committed habitual fraud by pretending to be a man or pretending to

be the CEO of a corporation out of wedlock.

When Nam Hyun-hee found out about his history and announced their

breakup, Mr. Jeon went to Nam Hyun-hee’s mother’s house and was

arrested by the police on charges of stalking on the 26th. He was released after investigation.

It is understood that Mr. Jeon was also significantly involved in the operation of the fencing academy.

In an interview with Women’s Chosun, Jeon also revealed, ‘I worked with

(Nam Hyun-hee) at the fencing academy, so I saw her often (recently).’

In relation to this, Nam Hyun-hee explained Mr. Jeon’s specific work at the

fencing academy, saying, “While I teach people who want to learn fencing

for their own reasons, Mr. Cheongjo does a business that deals with the

psychological education children need through arts and physical education.” 스포츠토토맨
